PVP Live reports that over 10,000 Overwatch players in Korea have picked up bans for cheating in the multiplayer shooter. Not content to unfairly outplay their opponents using its rampant aimbots, some players have taking to "nuking" opponents with DDoS attacks. They offer details translated from this Blizzard post on the topic, and also note that the rarely enforced laws on this topic show that players are risking a great deal for the satisfaction of seeming better at the game than those squares who follow the rules. Word is: "Nuking, in particular, is already illegal in Korea (when classified as a DDOS) according to Article 48 of the Promotion of Information and Communication Network Utilization and Information Protection Act. Fines for doing so can run up to 50 million won, or about $43,000 USD." Thanks PCGamesN.
